A thought-provoking trip

Sixth Form artists visit Bristol

Sixth Form Art pupils visited Bristol, to spend the day gathering first-hand contextual studies through the mediums of photography and observational drawing on Friday 5 October. The trip involved visiting the Arnolfini, The Royal West of England Academy and the Museum and Art Gallery.

The visit began with a series of photographs and observational studies of the Harbourside, which will help inform the development of the Lower Sixth pupils coursework project ‘Water’. We purposefully rambled through the city via various Banksy graffiti works of art, taking opportunities to photograph interesting street scenes, posters, signage and architecture.

At the Museum and Art Gallery, pupils took in the intricate Japanese prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige, producing a series of beautiful line drawings from life. The Museum gave pupils working across all disciplines and themes the opportunity to gather thought-provoking and interesting material that will inform the continuation of their studies as we return to the classroom.
